What's New in Technology


We continued to address multiple timezone-related issues as our top priority. We believe we have the fix but we are doing in-depth testing before getting it into production. Since it was a top priority, it took a lot of time away from working on several other key initiatives. However, we are at the point now where most of them are in the full sandbox for testing and final verification before we push them to production. Those include enhancements to the scheduling calendars, automatic resource recommendations, a fully-redesigned production sheet, auto-sending payroll statements to our resources, improvements to the COD process on copy orders, and additional products being added by resources. We worked with our DEG teammates and got the first version of a workbook in place to help with their video process management and we continue to make a priority of addressing fixes they identify and helping them as they continue to become more and more productive on Salesforce. We'll let your team leaders know as we roll out changes so you can be prepared to take advantage of them. We also have a number of additional enhancements on our “continuous process improvement” sprint plan and are rolling out a process to help get even more requests into that queue. From a NetSuite perspective, we’re making good progress on getting cost of goods sold (COGS) pushed from Salesforce into NetSuite on a near-real-time basis, including line-item detail. That’s moving us ever closer to being able to have accurate GP information available in NetSuite in real-time.


Improving the performance of HusebyConnect and reducing its system requirements remained our top priority in April. While we’re seeing improvements, we have identified additional work we can do in that area and are focused on it. Our longer-term goal of getting HC integrated with OneDrive so that we can easily share events and files between HC and Salesforce is still on our roadmap—we will get there!


Everyone completed the annual security training required by many of our customers. This is the first time everyone has completed it on time—thank you so much for the time and effort you put into it! We got quite a few of the older computers and laptops replaced this month, and we have a schedule for replacing the remaining few that are out of date. Our schedule aims to replace computers when they’re more than 3 years old; we’re still catching up on some, but we have everyone on the schedule. We’re also replacing our older servers to provide better performance and backups, and we’re in the process of upgrading wifi access points in the Charlotte office to improve network performance.

    What's New in Operations

    Production Update: 

    Last month (April) we shipped 2230 jobs. That includes 339 Expedites.

    Elizabeth Moore lead all production people with 242 jobs shipped through Salesforce. Thanks for leading the way Elizabeth!!!! Reporters used the Salesforce portal to turn in 70% of the jobs in April.

    Quality update: 

    April had 48 redo work orders out of 2230 shipped or 2.1% of what we shipped. Many of the redo requirements where from client requests that perhaps should have been on an errata. The below are the issues we need to improve on.

    27 reporter transcript issues.

    10 Late filed exhibits.

    5 production mistakes.

    Case Management: Notable cases in the month

    Matter of Certain Disposable Vaporizer Devices and Components, 12 depos all real time and same day roughs/finals in person, spread out in different cities in the country.

    Christopher Roberts, et al. v. Publix Super Markets, Inc. set by AM100 firm Seyfarth Shaw

    Lucinda Jackson v. Fandom

      Your support at the convention - shows me and others - the value you place on us, and we appreciate your generous contributions.

      With gratitude,
